  • DESCRIPTION Ratings: 99 Robert Parker - 98 James Suckling

    This wine takes its name from a small plot covered with oval white stones, which once belonged to the bed of an ancient river. The abundance of stones allows for optimal drainage and adaptation to extreme temperatures. The stones retain the daytime heat, radiating it at night, moderating the nocturnal cold. Furthermore, on extremely cold nights, they act like ice cubes, moderating the daytime heat. Malbecs from calcareous soils are extraordinarily aromatic, concentrated, and opulent. This wine can be enjoyed when young or after several decades.

    "The former River Stones has seen its name simplified to 2019 Adrianna Vineyard River. This is an exceptional vintage for this bottling, from a very stony part of the great Adrianna Vineyard in Gualtallary, near the Seco River. It's the equivalent of the White Stones white, with a north-facing exposure, the warmest exposure, which in cooler years like 2019 works very well. The wine has harmony and subtlety, suggesting violets and wet stones, with a rare combination of power and elegance, with minerality and spices, precise, focused, and harmonious. The tannins are abundant but very fine and ripe with a chalky sensation on the finish. It has 13.8% alcohol and very good freshness, acidity, and healthy parameters. In December 2020, 5,520 bottles were filled." - Luis Gutierrez - The Wine Advocate - Robert Parker
